After seven years of hype, worry, work, controversy and planning we finally made it to opening night for the Olympics this year in the UK - Ooops, GB as we must now refer to ourselves.
My overwhelming sentiment is one of pleasure, seeing so many people talking positively about the games. I hear people being excited and thrilled that we are hosting such a mammoth event. I heard a family expressing that the tickets were cheap compared to the cost of taking the family abroad to a games elsewhere and THEN buying expensive tickets as well.
We do cynicism so well in GB, I think it is exactly the right time to lose that, at least for a while, and be proud of what we are achieving, and proud of the huge amount of people who have worked so hard to make it happen.
Well done GB!
